Logic Problem Solution:
Three of the rustic furniture buys are given in clue 3: the
kitchen table and benches, the furniture made of cherry, and
the furniture made by Turner Mountain Turnery. By clue 10,
the Magnolias bought the walnut product from Chester & Son.
The kitchen set isn't walnut (1), so the walnut furniture
is the fourth purchase to the three in clue 3. By clue 1,
the kitchen set wasn't found at Freetown Furniture Factory,
nor was the cherry furniture (9). Therefore, the furniture
the Magnolias bought from Freetown is the fifth purchase.
The Freetown product isn't the end table (6), and the end
table isn't made of cherry (11). If the end table had been
made by Turner Mountain, it wouldn't be made of oak (6) or
maple (8); the end table would be pine--no (11). So, the
end table is walnut by Chester & Son. The Magnolias didn't
find the new bed headboard at Old Mill Artisans, Borland
Bros. (2), or Turner Mountain Turnery (8); they bought the
new headboard at Freetown Furniture Factory. The headboard
isn't made of pine (4) or oak (6) and is maple. The
furniture made by Turner Mountain is oak (12), and the table
and benches are pine. By clue 5, the linen hutch is cherry;
and, by clue 7, the linen hutch was made by Borland Bros.
By elimination, the kitchen set came from Old Mill Artisans
and the wash stand from Turner Mountain Turnery. The
Magnolias found rustic furniture as follows:
- cherry linen hutch at Borland Bros.
- maple bed headboard at Freetown Furniture Factory
- oak wash stand at Turner Mountain Turnery
- pine kitchen table and benches at Old Mill Artisans
- walnut end table at Chester & Son
